Clip from Scope  |  Season 5  |  Episode 23  |  10 Peach  |  November 10, 2019

A hurricane is spinning air that causes destruction due to the force it creates. Dr Joel shows us how to make our own spinning air machine or 'vortex generator' using only a bucket, scissors, tape and clear plastic. If you can get an adult to help you, you can even make it visible by adding smoke from a smoke machine. Have a go for yourself then try to knock over some cups. How far does the air from your generator reach?
